Hi folks, been off for a long time. Georgia, YAY. I'm working on aides too. But delaying till December so I can pay for one for this year and pay for one for next year s---taxes.
Hoping the tinnitus thing subsides with the aide.
Gettin externals b/c no matter what I do, I have an ear itch. Externals will not add to scenario
I was recommended to get at aides at 10---------now 68. Odd even at ten, I said not good enough. Now, yes, technology is there. I am such a nerd, I haven't even gotten them yet and I'm thinking who to Will them too. At vicinity of 5200$'s. DUH, they should be useful to someone after I'm gone. Particularly, if they are external.
I read back, already forgot much.
Quinn forget why I suggested a lawyer? Methinks I sent you my phone number, if I suggested you calling then there was a reason. Offers still there.
Swg hope all went well with follow up. HUGS
FYI to all: the reason of a stent placement in the carotid for Windingshores family member was Carotid Stenosis. Blockage of the Carotid artery. It's a very specific reason for pulsing typing tinnitus. IF it is the first symptom of unusual "noise" it should be evaluated by PCP who quickly sends you on to a interventional cardiologist. This should not be ignored. Repeat should not be ignored. DUH, repeat should not be ignored. Hmm did I say it shouldn't be ignored.
WHY? Can be related to hypertension, but also can be a precursor to a stroke. Scary? Yes. That is why I say "do not ignore a pulsing "Noise Change". The key to life is knowing what is trouble and taking the right action :)
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".
